Seniors will be the focus of Region 7’s national vaccination days.

CEBU CITY, Philippines – In Cebu, the “Bayanihan, Bakunahan” national immunization days will target over 160,000 elderly residents who would transition to the new normal under the lowest level of quarantine restrictions against coronavirus disease in 2019. (Covid-19).

The Central Visayas area has a total target of 222,063 doses to administer in this fourth leg of the national vaccination effort.

The elderly in Central Visayas are included in the target for the three-day statewide immunization drive on March 10-12, according to Dr. Mary Jean Loreche, DOH-Region 7 chief pathologist, who spoke at a news conference Friday at the Visayas Vaccination Operations Center (VVOC).

According to the National Vaccination Operations Center’s (NVOC) regional summary of targets, the Central Visayas region needs to vaccinate 150,798 senior adults in the provinces of Cebu, Bohol, and Negros Oriental, as well as the highly urbanized towns of Mandaue and Lapu-Lapu.

Central Visayas had the most senior citizens targeted for the three-day immunization program (52,726), followed by Western Visayas (52,726) and Muslim Mindanao’s Bangsamoro Autonomous Region (52,726). (51,993).

“We don’t need to set a goal for Siquijor’s senior residents because they’ve entirely protected all of their elders from Covid-19.” The same can be said for Cebu City, which has a solid vaccination record for its senior citizens,” Loreche remarked.

According to the report, Cebu province requires 84,034 vaccinations, with the cities of Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue receiving 7,076 and 537 respectively.

In Negros Oriental, Bohol is targeting 23,640 and 35,511 senior persons.

The other aim is the 61,427 adults in various categories who still need to finish their primary series in order to be added to the list of completely vaccinated people, as well as the 9,838 people who need booster shots.

The NVOC also set a target of 212,225 people for the primary dosage series.

“I’ll say it again: we need to review our data.” Many of our vaccines were placed in various groups due to their age, yet they are all seniors. “I am 60 years old, but I am also a medical front-line worker, which is why I was placed in the A1 group rather than the A2,” she explained.
